I am a 24-year-old guy whose girlfriend has started using the injection birth control method.

Since she started it, I have back pain and our sex life is not as great as it used to be.

Please help!

Dear Man

Some birth control methods affect a woman’s sex drive, because they use hormones that prevent ovulation that could affect how they feel during sex.

The good news is there are eight types of birth control women can choose from.

But there is no medical record of birth control affecting a woman’s sexual partner.

Talk to your girlfriend about how you feel, while respecting her boundaries and right to act responsibly.
